    Had booked the table 3 months per connects I’d read online. Went here for my wife’s birthday. Our waiter was great, but everything else was a real let down. The food was really average, took a while to get a table and overall not to what I had expected, or read on line. Neither my wife, son or I would go here again - go to Roy’s instead.

    My family and I are visiting Hawaii for the first time and we had a wonderful dinner at Morimoto Asia-Waikiki. The staff were professional and courteous, and our food was brought to us very quickly. This was arguably one of the best meals in our experience!

    This was the best meal I’ve ever had. The appetizers (fish carpaccio and sticky ribs) as well as the 2 lbs crispy fish were absolutely incredible. The service (Marshall) was outstanding and we got to meet Chef Marimoto! Unbelievable experience! Could not emphasize how amazing this was.

    Absolutely amazing. This experience blew us away. We have been in Hawaii for 2 weeks now and we are sad we didn’t try this sooner!! Easily the best meal we have had ever! They provided excellent customer service, the way the workers worked was amazing to watch. Can not fault them or the food provided. Highly highly recommend this place

    We expected amazing food from an Iron Chef’s restaurant but what we didn’t expect was a fun, lively, exciting atmosphere. We had an absolute blast while enjoying some excellent entrees. From the surf and turf sushi with Wagu beef to the whole sea bass and everything in between the food and overall experience were worth every penny.

    Iron Chef Morimoto himself was there!! This is my second time meeting him, the first being 20 years ago at his first restaurant in Philadelphia. He is even more gracious now than he was back then, and that is saying something! The food is good to excellent, but really, it is the experience of dining there, that really sets this restaurant apart. A number of dishes are finished tableside, which makes it feel extra fun and extra special.
